I love the guy's outfit. Apparently the girl on the right is a chaperone for the other 2 whilst they are on a date, as was the custom back then.

Re: Tropical ivy

Would it be too bad matching a seersucker jacket with a nice pair of high rise jeans?

Re: Tropical ivy

/\  not at all Young Ivy, you are in control, whether you can find a boom years pic of it or not, if you like it, then yeah!  better if the jeans are old and faded and the denim is not extremely heavy or dark .....

Re: Tropical ivy

/\  I know for sure of one 1973 photo of a rich longhaired hippie wearing Polaroid shades, a classic Ivy seersucker jacket with two on the sleeve, a weird Disney t-shirt, and faded old blue jeans .....

to me it's still thrilling to see photos from that wild Watergate time of quintessential Gonzo ....

anyway, everybody knows that medium-gray tropical wool worsted trousers are the only thing that's "correct" with a seersucker jacket but sometimes you need to be more casual

with seersucker and jeans you're in preppy territory, not Ivy, but I personally like the mix of '50s/'60s and '70s/early '80s styles, which yields Late '70s Prep ....

the obvious answer from people not on the ground in the tropics or sticklers is no it's not alright to wear seersucker with jeans but sometimes you don't feel like being obvious

mixing resortwear with workwear is classically jarring in its own right .....

Re: Tropical ivy

^ What about chinos with a seersucker jacket, perhaps a stone coloured pair?

while I wouldn't say it's wrong to wear a pair of stone chinos with a seersucker sports coat, I like a bit more contrast myself .......

I have an illustrated ad from the '50s in which a blue and white seersucker jacket was worn with khaki trousers, so it's hardly outré, but on the other hand I also saw multiple illustrations of seersucker jackets with medium-to-dark gray trousers and to me that combination looks quite a bit better ...

navy chinos are nice with seersucker also
